The 1st IEEE Workshop on
User-Centred Computer Vision
Intuitive, Interactive, Accessible
The programme for UCCV has been published - the other workshops will also be publishing their programmes shortly.

The deadline for paper submission has been extended to 21st September 2012 (2300 PDT)!

The submission site is up at Submissions are due by 2300 PDT 12th September 2012, 6 pages long (8 pages for a fee, see submission details), as a PDF with a maximum file size of 10MB.

All talks and other activities for UCCV will take place on 16th January 2013; poster presentations will take place on 17th January 2013 as a large joint poster session with the other WVM workshops.

Submission guidelines for UCCV have been posted and will follow the WACV guidelines. Use of the WACV Author Kit is recommended. The submission site will be online shortly.

The Winter Vision Meetings 2013 and Workshop on Applications of Computer Vision 2013 web sites are online. The WVM web site will have more detailed information on registration, venue, accommodation, travel and the other workshops.

The UCCV 2013 call for papers has been released - please feel free to distribute the CFP to anyone who may be interested in submitting a paper or attending the workshop.

The Winter Vision Meetings (WVM 2013) will be held in Clearwater Beach, Tampa, Florida, U.S.A. from 16th to 18th January 2013 (venue will be confirmed soon). As well as UCCV 2013, WVM 2013 will host the Workshop on the Applications of Computer Vision (WACV 2013), the Workshop on Performance Evaluation of Tracking and Surveillance (PETS 2013) and the Workshop on Robot Vision (WORV 2013). There will be a single passport-style registration for access to all workshop sessions.
We are pleased to announce the 1st Workshop on User-Centred Computer Vision (UCCV 2013), to be held as part of the IEEE Winter Vision Meetings in Clearwater Beach, Tampa, Florida, U.S.A. from 16th to 18th January 2013. UCCV is a one day workshop intended to provide a forum to discuss the creation of intuitive, interactive and accessible computer vision technologies.

The majority of researchers in computer vision focus on advancing the state-of-the-art in algorithms and methods; there is very little focus on how the state-of-the-art can be usefully presented to the majority of people. Research is required to provide new technology to address the shortcomings in the usability of computer vision.

The workshop will bring together researchers from academia and industry in the fields of computer vision and human-computer interaction to discuss the state-of-the-art in user-friendly and developer-friendly computer vision. We invite the submission of original, high quality research papers on user-centred, interactive or accessible computer vision. Areas of interest include (but not limited to):
  • Interactive computer vision techniques
  • Vision systems/frameworks designed for use by non-experts
  • Visual or Integrated Development Environments for vision system design
  • High-level abstractions of vision algorithms
  • Algorithm/Task/User level API design
  • Detection/tracking/recognition of a physical person as input to an interactive system
  • Interpretation of user input such as descriptions, sketches, images or video
  • Automatic or interactive algorithm selection
  • Automatic or interactive task selection
  • Automatic or interactive parameter tuning for vision algorithms
  • Using computer vision to exploit meaningful user interaction
  • Case studies on user-centred computer vision
  • Interactive/supervised correction of weaknesses in the current state-of-the-art in computer vision
  • Evaluation of vision interfaces (e.g. through user studies)
